The Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri held its annual Dessert First Gala at the Chase Park Plaza in the Lindell Room. The Dessert First event challenged 15 prominent St. Louis chefs to flex their baking skills and deliver their one-of-a-kind Girl Scout cookie-inspired creations. During the cocktail hour, guests were invited to taste and vote on their favorite of the chef’s unique creations. Later, at the formal seated dinner, attendees celebrated the extraordinary achievements and contributions of three Legacy Builders and two amazing Girl Scouts. All proceeds go to support their leadership development programs for girls.
